Yes, but personally I doubt that Rufus cares about all of the Turks as people rather than as Turks. What I mean is that he cares about Reno because he's Reno, or Tseng because he's Tseng, but he only cares about the Turks he doesn't encounter as often because they're Turks, and as such they're his. Did that make sense?

When I talk about the Turks, I generally mean the core group of those closest to Rufus (e.g., Tseng, Reno, etc.), while also recognizing that there are other Turks that are not in the 'inner circle' so to speak. So when I said that the Turks keep the appearance of a professional distance with Rufus as a means of protecting him, I was referring specifically to the subgroup we're familiar with This 'distance' would help protect Rufus from everyone else, including other Turks who perhaps are not so personally loyal to Rufus.

You're right in that Rufus extends his trust and care to only a very limited group. So yes, there are plenty of other Turks that he views merely as useful subordinates. But he does value those other Turks, if in a somewhat proprietary way, like a hunter values his pack of hounds. They're his property, so to speak, and since his well-being and success depends substantially on their performance, he takes care of them accordingly.

Hmmmm... I guess it's my turn to as if that makes sense?

And his arguments/protests kept on slowing Reno down, besides which carrying Rufus couldn't have helped the speed.

I don't think that the physical burden of carrying Rufus would've slowed Reno down much -- I tend to consider the Turks to be peak human or slightly enhanced to that level -- so it was probably more his concern and distraction about Rufus's condition that bogged things down.

Yes, and it's what I was trying to get at.

Makes sense.
